The security fix is as easy as removing the :backup record from
access.asc in your products directory, but the new UserDB module
won't allow a login from :backup so that will work too.

You should be able to simply install over the top of your existing 4.6.1
with no impact and no changes necessary. Just tar up a backup of the
interchange software directory just in case.
